Tennis Wales to take part in social media boycott with LTA and football community

• 1 MINUTE READ

Tennis Wales will be joining the LTA and stands with the football community in taking part in a social media boycott from 15:00 BST on Friday 30 April to 23:59 BST on Monday 3 May.

Nobody should have to suffer abuse, racism or harassment on social media because they play or are involved in a professional sport. British and international tennis players frequently suffer abuse online, simply for losing a match or even a point. This abuse is often especially targeted at female players. Social media abuse has been seen across multiple social media platforms in Wales and should not be tolerated any longer.

Simon Johnson, CEO for Tennis Wales said

“No-one should have the opportunity to abuse, threaten and cause distress to someone else through social media. We would like to see social media companies doing more to regulate their platforms and protect professional athletes along with those working in professional sport from harm”.
